Is Old Fret done?

Looks like his site is totally taken down aside from a thank you message. Anyone know anything? Also, anyone know where else to get vintage accurate decals?

I did email him. He didn't have exactly what I needed but I picked up a late 60s decal from him anyway. He also told me he is shutting down.

I too discovered this, which is too bad (for us) as his decals were great.

I did some eBay/Google searching and came across this store. I ordered something from them, but as I'm still waiting on the body, it hasn't all come together. Decal looks decent to my eyeballs.

that's too bad. I had to buy a decal when I had one of my guitars refinned recently, and as an experiment I bought several from various Etsy and eBay sellers plus oldfret, just to see if by chance it was all the same stuff.

It was NOT all the same stuff.

Nobody came close to oldfret

Somebody with some graphic design talent should approach Old Fret and ask for his proprietary stuff (i.e., designs, etc.) and essentially buy his business... if he is interested in selling. I don't have the talent.
